America, America, It's Time!

Updated on August 29, 2011

For some reason I've been thinking a lot lately about the shortness of time. I read a statement that shook me to the core. "...I shudder to think what lies ahead for the West." Simple enough, but oh, so powerful.

God has done great works in this country lately. I think of the Response USA at Reliant Stadium in Texas as thousands came together to seek the face of God. Less than two months ago, America took part in the Call2Fall movement and The Great American Fast. Nearly one and a half million people have fallen on their spiritual faces to seek their God in the last several weeks, but still we are far from God. Could the earthquake and the hurricane that recently ravaged the east coast be just the beginning of God's judgment? I pray for God's mercy, just a little while longer--long enough for Him to reach those that will come to Him. I think of family and friends that do not know Christ and what lies ahead for them. I think of the glory of this great nation, built on the Truth of God's Word, and pray that He will call us back. If Scripture is true (and it is) I know the end must come. It did for Sodom and the similarities between Sodom and America are too great. God, would You spare America for 50 righteous? 40? 30?...10?

With what little or much time we have left, might we spend it all for the glory of God and the lost souls He died to save! As long as there is time, there is God. He can and He will work. But He has always worked through human instruments. There is no draft in God's Army, so who will volunteer?

Someone has to stand up and say, "God, I'll be broken for You! Brokenness is painful. Are you willing to face the pain for the cause of Christ? So many would answer "yes" until the pain of brokenness comes. Someone needs to stand up and say, "God, I'll sacrifice for You! God, I'll pay the price (and who knows how heavy a price tag might come with it)! Who would cry out from a heart filled with anguish, "God, God, let me be the instrument through which You work to stem the tide, to stand in the gap. God, please don't pass me by!"

I fear many may read this and respond with positive comments and thoughts, and perhaps even well meaning hearts. I am not asking for positive comments and thoughts. I am not asking for well meaning hearts. I am asking you to take your shoes off, for you stand on holy ground. I am asking you to go in the power and the Spirit of God and enter into battle to change America. America, America, it's time--time to quit talking about it and do it.

If I go it alone, I go it alone, but oh, won't you join me? Won't you have the faith, the courage, and the boldness of Joshua and enter the land--but first, you must enter the battle.

      I do believe that is one of the most powerful messages I've ever heard by David Wilkerson or anybody else fore that matter, but yes, it's all so very true. Thanks for the visit!

      Yes, there is a limit to God's patience. How much is left, I don't know, but I do know it is running out. Thanks for the visit

      From what I can see America and the world in general is being shaken by God.

      Take a look at this Derek Prince video message:

      "I Will Shake All Things"

      The Lord says he will not contend with us forever. Pray as you, that He wait a while longer.

      As I look at history, isn't it remarkable how history keeps repeating itself. We're certainly running out of second and third and fourth chances. The inevitable is going to happen, but oh for mercy, just a little bit longer to get the lost in the fold! Thanks for the visit. It's always good to hear from you.

      I take a look at what's happening all around me, around the world and my heart cries out in pain. Pain for the lost, pain because of people's rejection of the Almighty, pain because of the cruelty and wickedness of men.

      God has been patient for centuries, waiting for His children to turn around to Him, waiting and waiting, yet this world gets more corrupt and evil each day.

      The time will come when God will have given all the second chances He is willing to give, and that divine alarm clock will go off.

      So, if by sacrificing everything I am would make a difference in God's Kingdom, then may His will be done; I am only a mere servant. However, look at history. Look at what the wicked did to God's prophets? Then what happened next? Judgement day is very near. There will no more putting it off or second chances, no matter how hard we try to bring people back to God.

      What is wrong with America does have to do with the religious, but not what you've written. LOL!
